Thousands of people come from all over to see these tulips, but I'm lucky enough to live close to a couple of the tulip lanes. And so for those who can't make it to the festival, I took some pictures this morning for you to enjoy.
Tulips whose petals have crinkly-looking edges.
A boulevard tulip lane means two rows of blooms to enjoy at once!
Another boulevard planting.
A tulip lane sign points the way.
My pictures scarcely do the tulips justice, plus it was a bit overcast this morning. But I hope you get some sense as to just how nice these plantings are!
If you'd like to learn more about the tulip lanes, go here.
The link will take you to the portion of the tulip festival website that discusses where tulips can be seen throughout the area.
And of course, the website has information on other parts of the festival, such as Dutch dance, shows, events and more. I confess, I don't attend the shows and some of the events - but the tulip lanes are a must!
